ground. Mechanically, for I was not cam-' 8r-*»t th °tt ghtl I Wheeled toward him, leaped to the ground and in a second was ,ttp again, with Tabal lyin K across the saddle before me. Do not stay to ask how I aid It. If ever you come to be in a life and death stfttit, you will find that the nerves and musclea can act independently when the wits are gone. The thing was done— «nd done before I kbew I had undertaken it. Starting again 1 cast an eye over myi .-shoulder to see four of the enemy's horsemen coming full tilt upon hie with level lances. Discerning it was to be aneck and neck racp *OT life, I touched my little mare with ' 'ie !f\ -irs, and though now carrying double she »f"mmed along with the speed of t^eos,' "''' *'nniekly distancing our pursuers, whc'\i!u<(f!d to easier game. But glancing bockrfaid again presently T saw with fresh dismay three other horsemen "oming at me sideways with the pace of th « .empest. From their looks I judged thura at once *o 1* Bedouin's genuine children of / the desert, of whom largo numhers were attracted to the standmd of Yumen Yusel by the glorious prospects of spoil. They had singled me out and were riding for death and booty, evidently under the im- prasion that my companion must be a man of rank and wealth. It was a natural conclusion that a common soldier would be left to die where he fell. /I looked into the face of Tabal to see whether he were dead, for ho had not •ipoken o word since I had lifted him. If he /Were a corpse, It would be the sheerest mad- mess to Incumber myself with him. But /•when I bawled in his ear he opened his / -eyes slowly and winked at me comically like one awaking from odd dreams. "Are you much hurt?" I shouted at the •pitch of my voice. He wriggled his left shoulder, and the movement brought a gush of blood. "There," he answered faintly, "You must sit up," I said quickly, "Our lives depend upon it." He made an effort, I assisting, and though he swayed considerably from light headedness be managed with my keep upright. The Bedouins meanwhile hod gained upon us and were yelling riotously In anticipation of an easy conquest. Doubtless they concluded that no horse carrying double could get away from them, but 1 thought to myself, with a pride which even fear could not wholly overcome, that they little knew the mettle of my Fatima. Her load once fairly adjusted, she would 'lead them such a dance as they might talk of with wonder for the rest of their lives. Nor did I calculate amiss. At a touch on the reign she mended her pace with an apparent ease and buoyancy thnt made my heart beat a wild tattoo of joy. It was short lived, however. I had forgotten we were iu «land where horses are swift as eagles; where every hack might be handicapped against an English racer. The Bedouins, too, were splendidly mounted, and instead of abandoning the chase came on with a double fury that threw the odds heavily to their side. Scarcely knowing what I did, I drove the rowels deep into my mare's flanks. She turned up a reproachful eye and a distended, fiery nostril, as if to say she was already doing her utmost. Nevertheless she bounded on, her neck a little more craned, her • ears a little flatter, her forefeet forging out a little farther. Whatever horse could do ' she would. That was the sentiment of her response. Looking back, I tingled with joy to find •that, in spite of her heavy burden, she was 'keeping her own. How long she could maintain that terrific pace was the crucial -question, for the pursuers came as hot behind as ever. With the corner of my aye I could see their horses reaching like greyhounds, their beads low, their nozzles straight out, and the black faces of the riders themselves thrust forward like the beaks of vultures. On, on, sped my mare in her arrowy flight, as if she knew the terrible need that waa upon her, and close in her track came the Bedouins, like beagles • on the trail yelping for blood, The next time I turned to note their progress I was horrified to see they were gaining upon us. There could not be the slightest •'doubt about it. My flesh crept together at the dlscoverv, so that I must have shrunk to half my natural size. What was to be •done? To fight or surrender was to be ripped on the spot, for I was hampered, and the pursuers were merciless. There was nothing for it hut continued flight, and in •flight also there net-mod small hope. I could doubtless save myself, but it was Impossible to abandon Tabal, the more specially that, having recovered bis senses, be was now begging piteously to he taken .away from those gleaming crimson lancos. Could my mare carry bothf That again was tho question of questions. In this extremity I looked about me, and I saw some were to the left, and inour rear u single horseman, hard pressed by two Bedouins, companions, as I took it, of those who were chasing me. His nose was almost ou bis charger's mane, and his spurred heels were clapped fast to its frothing flanks. Pursued and pursuers kept their distances, and there was a chance that tho fugitive might get off; but, finding spears useless, one of the Bedouins, uiiBlingiug his musket, took aim, There was ucrack, a pud of white smoke, and the mwi in front toppled over his horse's head. I saw nomoruof him, but a piercing scream that mlngloU with the yells of triumph told all too plainly of his fate. The horse bounded ou with empty saddle, veering slightly in our direction. Then a sudden inspiration ciuuo upon me—au inspiration so wild that for a second it made me blind. The rlderloss horse, as 1 havu indicated, was a little buhiud us itiul won running as nearly as possible parallel to our course. I would catch him aud put Tabal on bin back. That was the fearful resolution that sent tho blood buzzing to my brain. Swerving slightly to head oil the horse as men do In capturing wild animals on the pararle, I drove the spura wltli all my might into my little ware. It wan cruel, seeing how nobly she was already doing, but this was a last chunoe aud a providential one, A man will be exceedingly cruel to preserve his life. She spruiiff forward with a flash of the eye, now almost us red as her nostril, and a shower of spume worn her mouth. 'l'l.a 11—1^... . - WM between each leaning Inward, clutched at the trail ing bridle. My heart stopped, as t expected to fee him go on his haunches. But either the movement frightened him Into an unexpected dash, or they were clumsy, for, with a mighty jump and a wild tossing of the mane, lie rushed clear of them and came cnreeriui} on alone. With a reeling sensation of hope and despair I turned and mndenthim. Then, giving my rein to Tabal, 1 got my feet out of the stirrups, anil crouching on the top of the saddle prepared for a spring. On came the runaway on the right. In another moment he was alongside, but too far off. Tabal pulled his rciu, aud the two animals nearly collided. Then with a gasp as it I had plun.getl headlong into water I flung myself from my. perch, clutching desperately at the strange horse. He shied, and I fell short, just managing to find the pommel with my left hand, The hold v;as perilously slender, but what the teijje Ihi^ers caught they held with more than the strength of iron. Adjusting my grip quietly for a moment till I got my breath, I was just on the point of pulling myself up after the manner of gymnasts in order to swing into the saddle, when a spear came whistling through the air, catching my horse somewhere in the hind quarter. Wild before, the sting of the steel made him fairly frantic. With a furious leap that nearly cast me to the ground he turned and bolted off iua newdirection, I dangling helpless and stunned by his side. Clinging to girth and pommel with every nerve and muscle, Indeed with every sense and faculty and power of body and mind and will, bumped nnd buffeted so that the wind was often knocked clean out of me and the world seemed whirling away into utter chaos, I was rtnigued along at the speed of lightning. To hold on for many minutes in that condition was impossible, and to let go mount, instant destruction. Had I been able to get my toes steady on the earth for half a second, I could have sprung astride the flying animal, but at that fearful velocity the thing was beyond a tiger's agility. Yet if something could not be done, and done quickly, I felt it would be better to breathe a prayer and let the agony end. Small things are momentous in decisive moments, and sometimes weakness is salvation. As the quivering grasp relaxed I gradually sank lower and lower, till half my length trailed on the ground. Two or three more little slips and my enemies could work their will. The darkness and dizziness of death w re already upon me when my knee stru' * '"some protuberance so that with ttte mighty speed I bounded like n ball. It gave me my opportunity. Finding myself well in the air, I concentrated all my strength, drawing fiercely with the left hand. Tho lax muscles turned to steel in the moment of supreme need. I rose on that terrific pull. Then quicker than thought the girth was let go and tho right hand shot across the saddle. The hooked fingers caught something, and the next moment, wriggling and nearly blind from excitement and exhaustion, I lay half across the horse's back. Then, with such an effort as a man makes for his life, I wriggled farther up, and before I knew it was in the saddle aud reaching for the rein. As I got it a yell of rage went up close behind, aud another spea-, less true in aim than the first, whizzed past and buried itself in the sand. For the next five minutes I flew in instant expectation of death. Crouching with the long spurs deep horse's sidfs, and my heart afraid to beat, I pelted on. was bound for bound of pursued and pursuers, a race as of hounds panting at the heels of a stag that just managed to keep a tongue's length in trout. But woe betide the quarry Iu case of mishap or mistake! Hod anything gone wrong with me, had my girth broken or my horse stumbled or slipped or Blackened pace for so much a? the tenth part ot a second, my blood had been poured out on the desert. " Whither I was going, or whether there were many or few about, I could not tell. I saw nothing but a jumbled, feverish vision ot tho low craned head of the horse, a flying mane and a pair of reaching forefeet that never seemed to touch the ground, but in my ears was a noise that told me death was riding hard at my back. The spume flakes flew up from my horse's mouth, wetting ray Jace, and I could feel the Increasing heave o! his flanks. Now and then, too, I had a glimpse ot a red eye and a nostril like "a pic full of blood." It was sheer cruelty to goad htm on. But what were considerations of cruelty to one with three fiends stretching within three yards for his life? I was cruel as cruel could be, plying the long sharp spurs as fast and ns hard as heel could drive th who n, wore appallingly my intention, bow two wade third tuiuute wore ruoo «t all my tu » »w«b * roiu » e « with » wounded I,,»!TI '" aur , ut ' Ui, tuo . .-Jn of It^ud'lTanca' tejwffis? 2 most, or w» are lost) •purs, which are uev Wist* of dUtrens, a UK nod again, aud that pitiful bound.

So great wan the atrain of terror that it may well be Imagined no fresh alarm could nffect me, Yot when a vicious cry went up, as it appeared, at my very ear, betoken- lug as I fancied tho triumph of the Bedou- Ina, I Hhut my eyes with a creeping, shuddering horror that made me give a little acraim. I rodo In darkness for what seemed an eudluss time, momentarily expecting the thruat of cold steel in the small of the buck. As it did not come I ventured to open my eyes, but nothing could have induced IHO to look behind. It WIIH now high noon and the nun an Incandescent globe overhead. There may have becu clouds iu the sky, but asmiredly there was neither shadow nor breath of moving air ou the earth.' I sti'wed In my soaked clothes as If dissolving over a slow flro uud gasped and \vhuuzod like au asthmatic shut up In au oven, for thequlver- Inn, simmering heat not only broiled thu body, but was as a stinging acid In ta* eyu* and nostrils and as burning fumes iu the lungs. AU at once there came a sharp puff of wind, not Hweet and rctreshiuK, butoharged with more poisons than ever chemist dreamed of. Looking upward I saw a great glare in the sky, as It were thu reflection o« some vast coitllugratton, and eveu as I looked thu glaru swiftly deepened, till it appeared tho heavens themselves wero on ! tire. ' —'-- i.i.,..i.. and covers its face as close as cloth will roll. 1 lay unable to breathe nnd in exquisite torture, my horse scuddllng before the tempest. He stumbled often and would have lain down hut that I kept the spurs to him. Had he had his will, in less than half ft minute we should both have been buried beneath a wreath of sand to lie there until the winds came again to unearth our bleaching skeletons. Th* storm passed on like a solid wall, and as if by magic the atmosphere cleared, though I could still see the black line of the whirlwind far ahead. I looked eagerly about for company, but found myself completely alone. No Bedouins in pursuit, no Bedouins in sight, nor indeed any living thing. The simoon bad given me my life, but it left me desolate. Dismounting and looping the bridle over my arm, I walked a little bit, shaking loads of sand from the folds of my dress. My right let, however, was so sore nnd Stiff that I wns soon compelled tositdown, though It was a long time before I had any heart for surgery. When at length I got sufficient command of my nerves to examine the wound, I found myself with an ugly gash in the right thigh, from- the depths of which blood still oozed. The clotted outer edges were i'u?t hardening and stiffening so that the pain grew cruelly intense. Perhaps it was because attention was directed to my hurt that it became all at once BO sensitive, but the smallest movement now caused a pang that cut the breath like a stab. Besides, I was in a raging fever of thirst. A water skin dangled from my saddle bow, and I reached for it iu hope of relief. It was already cracking aud shriveling in the furnacelike heat, but there was a chance that some of tho precious contents might still remain. Now that the idea of it came to me my whole being called out vehemently for a mouthful of water as the sole hope of life. Nothing else could save me. Eagerly pushing the dented sides of the skin apart, I looked in. The dazzled eyes saw only a vacant blackness. Merciful heaven, it could uot be that the skin was empty. I peered deeper and deeper. My vision must be at fault, for if I did not see water I certainly smelled it. Thrusting in iny hand I brought out a handful of mud, the refuse of some well trampled into foulness by struggling, perishing men and beasts. The skin dropped from my nerveless fingers, and the oozy sediment came dribbling out. Before I knew what I was about I was sucking it for dear life, but it stank so poisonously that I had to spit it out immediately. Yet moisture of any sort was too precious to be wasted, so I emptied the trickling mire upon my baking wound, rubbing it in with my finger as a smearer rubs his tor into tho divided fleeie of a sheep. I cannot say that the application in tho least assuaged the pain. Aud the disappointment of finding the skin empty gave an added poignancy to the throbbing of iny inflamed throat aud lips. Ohl for a single drop, just one drop of clear, cool water to ease that fiery torture. Worlds upon worlds would I have given for BO much liquid as lies on the petal of a daisy at dawn, and worlds upon worlds could not have purchased It there. I bandaged the wound—that is to say, I bound it roughly with a rag torn from my long Arab shirt. But what mattered it whether it was attended to or not? Why defer paying a debt that is exacted ot all men? Would it not be best to let death distrain at once, aud have done with "this fever called living?" Utterly worn ouu with fatigue and fright and excitement, I was tired of being the sport of destiny. To think of triumphing over her was a fool's thought. No man had done it. No man would or could dolt. Why should I prolong a bootless strife? The cry of the sick heart was the cry of the ancient Celt: "How evil was the lot allotted to Llywarch the night when he was brought fort hi Sorrows without end aud no deliverance from his burden." No deliverance from his burden I That was the sentence of old; it was the sentence still. A galling struggle tragically relieved by momentary Illusions of hope and happiness, endless humiliations, crushing defeat and at last inevitable death. Yet it was bard to die: bard to think calmly of one's own bones being picked by those vultures which were already hovering above me iu anticipation of a corpse to feed on. I was not yet philosopher enough for that. Crouching on the sand, my head sank deep between my knees iu an agony of despair. The sun beat down as if the heavens were u vault of fire, and millions of quivering arrows seemed to dart along my spine. It was rapidly driving me crazy. I was going mod with the consciousness of tho calamity full upon mo. Merciful God, I was to die a raving maniac in the burning wildernessl The thought thrilled for au instant iu the brain, making me shiver as with a sudden chill, and then came a strange calm. That at least could be prevented. Drawing my sword, I felt its edge, thinking of Saul aud his armor buarur. The blade was of Damascus steel and as keen as a razor. A moment's courage and all would be over; so sharp au instrument could cause little pain, nothing to what I was already suffering. I learned then that n man may take his own Ufa smiling.

In Attendance. Secretary Herbert at New York. PITTSBURO, April SB.—The eighth annual banquet of America's Republican club in commemoration of General Grant's birthday waa held at the Monongahela house Friday night and was attended by prominent Republicans from all parts of the country. Among the number were ex-Speaker Reed, Congressman W anger and Congressman Robinson. General Frank Reeder, Hon. Walter Lyon and General D.- H. Hastings, Covers were laid for KTS and every chait was occupied. Previous to the banquet a reception was tendered ex-Speakei Reed. After full justice had been done to the menu, President Torrence introduced General Frank Reeder with the toast "Grant" in which he paid a beautl ful tribute to the dead soldier and statesman. Hon. Thomas B. Reed was the next speaker and when he rose he was tendered an ovation. His address was impromptu and in part was as follows: Maine Statesman Talks. •'The last time I had the good fortune to address this club this country was in a state of peace and prosperity; work was plenty, capital was rejoicing in its productive strength and labor was enjoying the right to selt its services at prices which brought happiness and comfort to all our homes. The 80 years which had preceded had witnessed the gradual and steady rise of compensation for service of both brain and muscle until every day's labor was worth in results twice what it had been worth since the last domination of this union by southern statesmen and their principles. So firmly rooted seemed our prosperity that all our citizens thought it beyond the reach of heat and cold and all changes of sun and weather, and most men felt it was beyond the touch of even human folly. It is not the disorganized crowds which seem to be aiming, but in an aimless way, toward the capitol of the nation; it is not that mills are running on half and quarter and no time at all; nor capital piled up unused at the centers of trade, nor even labor unemployed for nearly a year past which completes the sad procession of the picture. People 8eoiu Powerless. "To me the eight most odious of all is the utter inability of the people to reach their own instruments and to compel the fulfillment of their own will. Here iu a land where law by the people was fondly hoped to have found its truest and latest expression, the people seem powerless to control their own legislature and to correct by sober reflection the mistake of the most thoughtless act in American history—the day when the present congress and the day when the present executive were chosen to preside over the unhappy citizens of the United States. Whatever the Majority will do, whatever the exercise of the right could do, has been done in large and overwhelming measure. Why is this, and what are the causes? Were we left to the tender mercies of the northern Democracy, I venture to say no such condition could exist for even a single hour. It is because we are under the domination, I will not say of the south, but of southern men elected to office without those safeguards which surround the election of the northern Democrats. Represent OlweUte Politic*. "For the sake of the south, itself, I hope to see the next election bring us to an end of this unseemly domination. All election laws have been repealed and tho south, having been set free from a fear which uovor had sound foundation, will be left at liberty to decide her destiny according to her industrial needs, which are the same as those of the north. Instead of a set of men who represent obsolete politics and principles of a dead generation, their successors, let us hope, will represent what the north longs to see—an industrial, prosperous south, full of the life of a uew contry." Addresses were also made by General Hastings and Congressman Robiuson. Letters of regret wore road from Colouel Fred D. Grant, Governor MoKiuley, General J. M. Sohofiold, Senators Sher- lutm, Hale, Huwloy, Cameron, Hon. Robert T. Lincoln and others. A<ldron«><l by Heorutury tlcrbert.

Devlnres K« W«s In Vlnton on the Day II Is Claimed He Was In Cedar Rapid*. MARION, la., April 28.—Muck interest Waa developed in the Ramsay cat* Friday, and at times the scenes were highly sensational. The attempt was made to show that Ramsay paid the expenses of Rock Island strikers while cutting wires, for which two have been sent to the penitentiary. Mr. Ramsay went over the circumstances of big doings on Sept, 37, and named a number of reasons why he knew he was in Vinton when the state's witnesses swear he Was in Cedar Rapids, and paid money to meet the expenses of wire cutting. Past Grand Chief Thurston testified that he saw Ramsay pay money to Jeffreys at noon on the 27th, and that none waa paid at night. He also swears that Ramsay was not at headquarters on the night of the 37th. The defense introduced evidence of Policemen McKnffry and Campbell and Hack Driver Wright, who swore positively thai Ramsay was in Vinton on the night of Sapt. 27, when the state's witnesses swore he paid them money in Cedar Rapids to be used in tying wires.
